Extremely impressive bit of kit
We have run a Miele washer/drier for 14 years since our twins were born. It still works absoltely fine as a washer but the compromised drier function and the smallish drum meant that washing always ended up on airers, radiators etc around the house to dry - and now we read that's a health hazard for asthma sufferers (two members of our family). A bigger kitchen and a space ready for a vented drier prompted us to get a dedicated tumle drier and we chose Miele again. Very very impressed. Washing is dry REALLY fast (it always says 1hr 30 or 40 initially but this invariably changes as it measures the job more accurately, usually to 30 minutes or less. Our washing machine load can't fill the drum, it's huge. The speed and the eco rating mean that we are comfortable about using it when it's not warm enough to try clothes outside. Bought from the Co-Op, £10 more than the lowest price but excellent delivery system with accurate 90 minute slots given by email and text the day before. If you are looking for a vented drier this is an exceptional machine and Miele quality is still worth the extra money we think.
Disposal of your old machine
Just received delivery of this product from Redhill Appliances whom I was directed to via 'Compare Prices'. I have every confidence that the product will prove excellent as I have a Miele washer and this has been perfect. The speed and efficency of service from Redhill was excellent. However, purchasers of white goods should be aware under government legislation (WEEE Regulations), retailers have to ensure that customers can return their old like-for-like appliance free of charge. Not for the first time have I been advised by the delivery driver that this can be done but for a charge. I rang Redhill and they immediately agreed to free removal whilst stating that their usual policy is to charge for carriage. For further details of the obligations of retailers, purchasers are advised to visit the Environment Agency website. Perhaps Which could remind their subscribers of this in a more general article?
I replaced this after previously owning a Bosch, White Knight & Hotpoint over the last 25 years. Am so glad I paid a bit more, the dryer am sure will save on running costs as it's so much speedier than previous dryers I've had. We've had this for three months now and would recommend to anyone.

I have just had this dryer for a few days but it is working very well. My loads of washing dry in half an hour. I let the automatic sensor decide when the clothes have had long enough. The sensor can be set to stop when the clothes have more or less 'residual moisture'. Initially the clothes came out a bit damp on the factory setting, but I have changed the setting and now they come out dried to perfection. The clothes come out all nice and bouncy and soft, which is very nice with my toddler's clothes. They used to air dry to the consistency of stone in my airing cupboard but now they are like new every time I wash them.The machine came with a 5 year warranty from Miele, which is very nice.
